The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is looking to hire a Program Officer for GGP Joint Secretariat.
GGGI is an international organization dedicated to pioneering and diffusing a new model of economic growth, known as “green growth”. This simultaneously targets key aspects of economic performance, such as poverty reduction, job creation, social inclusion and those of environmental sustainability such as mitigation of climate change and strengthening the resilience of natural capital and ecosystem services. GGGI’s approach is particularly suited to developing countries because it starts from broad-based progress in living standards and growth. Since 2013, GGGI has worked in close collaboration with the Government of Indonesia in the GoI-GGGI Green Growth Program (GGP).
BAPPENAS is GGGI’s key government counterpart in Indonesia and the co-host of the GoI-GGGI Green Growth Program. This relationship led to the establishment of a joint secretariat and steering committee under a ministerial decree. Continued engagement with BAPPENAS is needed to strengthen the capacity of the joint secretariat in providing efficient technical and programmatic support to the program.
